Finally, after a weather and Covid impacted season, the Haddenham Cricket Club U15 Team were crowned as Aylesbury & District Midweek Cricket League Champions.
The team faced stiff opposition throughout the competition but always managed to rise to the challenge and could finish the season unbeaten.
Proud Lead Coach Tim Chowns said 'I have worked with some of these players since they were 9 years old so this title isn't simply an acknowledgement of great cricket for one season, it is recognition for the hours they have spent, honing their skills over many years."
"A lot of credit should go to the brilliant coaching team of Dave, Chris and Steve for their dedication, Chris the Groundsman for preparing lovely pitches, Haddenham cricket Club for being a supportive and inclusive club and the parents who transport players all over the county."
"But let's not take anything away from the players, they have been marvellous all year. When the chips were down and things were looking bad someone always stepped forward to score some runs or take wickets. This is the first title I have won as a coach so the players have made an old man very happy indeed'.
The U15s play their final league game on Monday 19th July at 6:00pm in Haddenham Playing Fields. The trophy will be awarded and the players will celebrate. It will be a wonderful occasion, to which everyone is welcome.
